Bird & Bird is proud to be the principal sponsor of the Corporate Counsel Forum and Awards, Hosted by Legal Week (organisers of The British Legal Awards) and the ACC Middle East group.
Our UAE partner Kelly Tymburski will be hosting a round table with the title "Big Data: Challenges and Opportunities" during the Forum. In this session we will provide an overview of the legal and regulatory framework governing data protection and privacy in the Middle East (with a focus on the UAE), outline some of the key risks and potential pitfalls to be aware of, provide some practical guidance on how organizations can effectively manage the data they process, and provide insights into what the future holds for Big Data and its regulation in the Middle East. She will also briefly discuss how organisations can best position themselves for success in managing IT driven transformational projects.
The awards, which are now in their fourth year, celebrate legal excellence in the Middle East and are open to in-house legal teams and law firms operating throughout the region. The awards ceremony will take place at Raffles Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The Legal Week Corporate Counsel Forum Middle East 2015 will take place on 13 May at Patk Hyatt Dubai, and the Corporate Counsel Middle East Awards will take place on 14 May at Raffles, Sheikh Zayed Road, Wafi, Dubai.
